Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival 2019

The Lubao International Balloon and Music Festival has been an enormous success for five consecutive years. It’s known for its vast landscape, high-spirited concerts, and beautiful hot air balloons that take to the sky in clusters. But every year has its own surprises. Now on its 6th year, the LubaoIBMF2019 is set to take you above and beyond!

Lubao 2018 featured annually held activities and some new ones such as off road, rallycross, and ultralight planes, which made the Going Five and Up event much more appealing to its attendees. A number of the balloons deviated from the usual and featured special shapes like Christ the Redeemer, Olaf the Clown, and Bobo the Lobster just to name a few. Although weather conditions made it difficult for the hot air balloons to take flight, the event quickly regained its place thanks to the exhilarating performances by some of the country’s top performing artists and personalities.


Following the previous year’s success, LubaoIBMF comes back this 2019 to take you above and beyond! This event is happening for three days, beginning from April 5 to 7. The artist lineup consists of crowd favorites such as Al James, This Band, Juan Karlos, I Belong to the Zoo, Ben & Ben, Shanti Dope, December Avenue, and Gloc-9. Also watch out for the country’s top artists Moira, Bamboo, and Apl.De.Ap along with Jessica Reynoso. Apart from these, we’ll also be featuring special guest Vice Ganda; this explosive lineup will surely have everyone looking for more!

Aside from these outstanding artists, the LubaoIBMF2019 will also offer some of its most loved activities such as Rallycross, Off Road, Ultralight, Motoparagliding, Motocross, Zookobia, which are among many more entertaining ventures. Put your sunblocks on and get ready for the hottest event this summer!
